Premiere: 19. 10. 20223,
Church Klarisky, Bratislava, Slovakia

The performance CODES OF BACH, combines the Baroque music and contemporary dance. It originates from Concerto D minor — BWV 1052, composition for harpsichord and string orchestra, by the Baroque composer J. S. Bach.

The principles encoded in the score were translated into contemporary language of dance and music. Decoding the principles of the score reveals entwined relationships between music and dance, between individual layers of music and movement material, and relationships between the Baroque and the present day.
